Open thread for Saturday September 15: Unofficial Southern New Hampshire lawn sign poll results edition
Here is the open thread for Saturday, September 15th. Feel free to post links to interesting articles and discuss whatever issues arise throughout the day.
I have a couple of little site announcements to make today: First; my wife and I are taking a weekend vacation to Weirs Beach to celebrate our wedding anniversary so I will not be posting or answering comments until Monday. Second; I have a new commitment on Thursday evenings (at least for the time being, it may become permanent) which will make it almost impossible for me to post on Thursdays, so I will be changing the days of the open threads to Thursdays and Sundays. The next open thread will not be until next Thursday.
As I travel through the southern portion of New Hampshire on a daily basis I decided to conduct an unofficial lawn sign poll, here are the results so far:
Mitt Romney: 20 plus lawn signs
Gary Johnson: 6 lawn signs
Barack Obama: 2 lawn signs, but this comes with a caveat. One of these lawn signs has been proudly displayed since 2008 and decorated with two small American flags, one on each side. It has been well taken care of for years. So technically Barack Obama has only one lawn sign which can be attributed to this election cycle.
I am hoping that this is a sign of things to come in New Hampshire when the election rolls around in November.
On a totally unrelated note I have decided to include two musical selections from Iggy Pop; ‘Five Foot One,’ and ‘The Passenger.’
Enjoy and have a great weekend everybody! See you on Monday when I return refreshed and ready to go after a couple of days off. It is needed after what turned out to be quite a trying week in the news.
